What to expect from Auto Expo 2023
Asia's largest vehicle show, the Auto Expo, will return in January 2023 after a three-year break brought on by the COVID-19 epidemic. This year's event will take place from January 13 to January 18 at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. In the upcoming year, there will be several debuts in the Indian auto market. It will serve as the starting point for a number of new SUVs and cars. Here's what can one anticipate from the next Auto Expo.
On Indian soil, the SUV is presently undergoing testing. The last time it was seen was during high-altitude testing in Ladakh. According to the spy photos, the 5-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny has a larger wheelbase to provide rear-seat occupants extra legroom. However, the extra space will let the SUV drive more steadily on the highway and be more capable off-road. The Jimny will probably make its debut during the forthcoming 2023 Auto Expo before going on sale later.
For the South Korean automaker, the Hyundai Creta has been a lucrative nameplate in the Indian market. The SUV has continuously had strong sales figures, although it is starting to look a touch dated. Hyundai, therefore, intends to release the updated Creta in the Indian market. The updated Hyundai Creta is currently on sale in a few international countries, and the Indian debut is anticipated for the 2023 Auto Expo. While the available powertrains won't change, it will receive a significant aesthetic makeover.
New spy pictures of the impending Honda City facelift have recently appeared online. The City is still one of the company's best-selling models, thus the business is considering a facelift for the fifth-generation Honda City. Currently, the sedan is available with a powerful hybrid powertrain, a diesel engine, and a gasoline engine. According to recent speculations, the corporation may soon stop selling Honda City, diesel models.
Current Tata for reference
Tata Harrier and Tata Safari
Tata's two most prominent models in its Indian lineup are the Tata Safari and Harrier. The local company is testing the updated models - decked out in camouflage - on Indian roads in preparation for the forthcoming 2023 Auto Expo. These SUVs' redesigned models will have a new outside appearance, while the inside is anticipated to have additional amenities and a longer feature list.
One of the most popular c-segment cars in India is the Hyundai Verna. However, the new-generation avatar will soon be on the market. Currently undergoing testing is the 2023 Hyundai Verna in India. But it's anticipated that the new-generation Hyundai Verna will make its formal debut at the 2023 Auto Show. Hyundai Verna will be the only sedan in its category to have a diesel powertrain as a result of Honda's decision to stop producing the diesel engine.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno Crosssover
In January 2023, the Indo-Japanese will present its brand-new tiny coupe SUV at the Delhi Auto Expo. The vehicle, rumoured to be called the Maruti Baleno Cross, will serve as the foundation for Suzuki's Global C platform. The mild hybrid Boosterjet turbo petrol engine, which complies with BS6, will power the SUV. Additionally, the 1.5-litre Dualjet or 1.2-litre Naturally Aspirated Petrol engines may be included. It will be a Nexa product, with an anticipated price range of Rs 8 lakh to Rs 11 lakh.
So far, Kia India has kept its plans for the 2023 Auto Expo a secret. There are several rumors that the manufacturer may display the improved Seltos at the occasion. The SUV's appearance will have been marginally upgraded, with new headlights, a more noticeable air dam, revised front and back bumpers, new alloy wheels, and taillamps with an L-shaped LED signature. A new infotainment system will be installed inside. The 2023 Kia Seltos facelift will have ADAS package, much like the new Creta. There won't be any engine-related adjustments.
